To have an apparently healthy snake die is not scientific, healthy individuals do not die, something fails and that failure causes death. By definition, death is not healthy. In most cases, what causes that type of death to occur is organ failure. With the most common being liver and kidneys. those two can cause the death of apparently healthy individuals. As opposed to individuals withering away.
Kidney failure usually is attributed to dehydration(chronic or extreme)
Liver failure can be attributed to improper metabolism.(improper temps) usually undermetabolized. An inability to process energy(fat)

Now we are getting into areas of extreme importance. As this evolves mice as a diet.

I can go on and on explaining this and how it works, but your going to have to ask, if your interested. End part 2
